Miriam Hopkins, Merle Oberon, Joel McCrea, Catherine Doucet, Alma Kruger, Bonita Granville, Marcia Mae Jones, Margaret Hamilton, Walter Brennan.
Penetrating drama of two young women (Oberon, Hopkins) running school,
ruined by lies of malicious student Granville; loosely based on Lillian
Hellman's The Children's Hour. Superb acting by all, with
Granville chillingly impressive; scripted by the playwright. Remade
in 1961 by same director as The Children's Hour. ****
